9780692429716: Frankenstein Diaries: The Romantics: The Secret Memoirs of Mary Shelley (Volume 1)

The real love story of Frankenstein. In 1814, two years before the notorious “Gothic Summer” in Geneva, 16 year old Mary Godwin eloped to Paris with the 22 year old poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley, inviting Mary’s 15 year old step-sister Claire Claremont to go with them. They would walk across war ravaged France to Switzerland and up the Rhine River to a castle called Frankenstein. Three years later Mary would publish the diaries she kept of that journey of two teenage girls and the poet of “free love”. In the published version of “A History of a Six Week’s Tour” she would tell where they went and what they saw, but she never revealed the true secrets of that trip, from where a later inspiration arose. Here now, for the first time is revealed the secret personal life of the author of Frankenstein on that tour and beyond.

About the Author:

Michael January is a screenwriter and travel author. His Favorite Castles book series is in its fourth edition with the publication of Favorite Castles of Germany and Favorite Castles of Switzerland. "The Frankenstein Diaries: The Secret Memoirs of Mary Shelley - The Romantics" is his first historical collaboration novel.

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was born on August 30, 1797 and died on February 1, 1851. She was a novelist, essayist and biographer, best known for Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus. Her other published works include historical novels: Valperga, The Fortunes of Perkin Warbeck, and Falkner; and the travel memoir Rambles in Germany and Italy. This is her first posthumously published work, though her story and characters of Frankenstein have been revised and utilized in countless unauthorized works and adaptations.

Review:

"This historical fiction novel is recommended to anyone interested in the lives of Percy Shelley and Mary Shelley. The read was enjoyable and captures the feel of this time period. From joining conversations on religion and philosophy with her father and his friends, to her stilted relationship with her stepmother and grief over her own mother's death, we can see the events that shaped Mary Shelley's life and inspired her writing of Frankenstein...a subtle but illuminating look... I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed it." - Online Book Club

"An entertaining 'collaboration', exhaustively researched, skillfully adapted...long on memorable characters that will make readers see the seminal classic Frankenstein in a new light." - Historical Novel Society

"Wonderful. Rich in detail, atmosphere and language. It took me away. Five Stars." - Goodreads
